SF Preps: High school basketball roundup sees Serra edge Riordan at home

Though the storied Bruce-Mahoney Game got the lion’s share of the attention on Tuesday night, there were great games of all sorts involving area teams.

Serra 67, Riordan 64: For the tenth straight year and 11th straight time overall, Serra (11-2, 3-0 WCAL) topped the Crusaders at home, erasing a 12-point deficit in the final five minutes to do so. Parker McDonald led the Padres with 19, Patrick Simon sank three 3-pointers and finished with 15 off the bench and Cade Rees scored 12 and collected a game-high 10 rebounds. Je’Lani Clark and Bryce Monroe each scored 19 for Riordan (9-4, 2-1), though Clark did so on 9-of-11 shooting while Monroe went 8-for-23 from the field. Chimae Ugbaja added 12, and Justice Turner hit a half-court shot to end the third and give the Crusaders a 51-44 lead entering the final period. Back-to-back threes by Simon and Antonio Abeyta tied the game at 58, and a Cooper Fitz layup off a pass from McDonald gave the Padres the lead as part of a 19-2 run.

Stuart Hall 53, University 47: With a capacity crowd on hand at The Dungeon, Stuart Hall (14-4, 3-0 BCL West) played tremendous defense in the first half, allowing just two points in the second quarter, before Max Fried fueled a late push to give the Red Devils life. Fried led all scorers with 21 points, and University (11-7, 2-1) also got 13 from Christian Heng. Nigel Burris led the Knights with 13, Miles Amos added 11 and Alex Byrd scored nine.

Mission 79, Lowell 58: The Bears outscored Lowell 24-5 in the first quarter and forced 21 turnovers to make it 40 straight wins over AAA opponents, including 31 in the regular season. David Sonnier led Mission (6-9, 3-0) with 20 points, Ben Knight scored a modest 14 and Jaraughn Torno added 10. Lowell (10-7, 1-2) got 15 from Rishi Raghavan, 11 from Joshua Ng and 10 from Jace Ng.

Lincoln 67, Galileo 59: The Lions hung tough on the road against Jordan Aquino, Gage Cross and the rest of the heavily-favored Mustangs.

Urban 50, Marin Academy 44: Despite a massive disadvantage in size, Urban (6-12, 1-2 BCL West) was able to pull out the win in San Rafael.

Lick-Wilmerding 59, San Domenico 41: Zach Johnson scored 19 for the Tigers, who cleanly dispatched the BCL West newcomers. Allen Wilson did not play for Lick-Wilmerding (15-4, 1-2) after suffering an injury early in Friday’s loss to Marin Academy.

Washington 59, KIPP 38: Eighteen points from Jackie Luong, 17 from Da’Jon Aranas and 12 from Riordan transfer Mack Yates gave Washington (6-11, 2-1 AAA) a comfortable win.
